I can't launch app with shortcut

with 20.10 the same shortcut works but in the new 21.04 not anymore.
I make a shortcut CTRL+\ but instead open an app an error message appears: look the pic https://imgur.com/9zdIHNa

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

It looks like ti can't find the executable (quieterss) - perhaps you mean "quiterss"?

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

What does the following command return:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -lv | grep -E 'quite|backslash'

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Does "quiterss" run when you enter the command on a terminal window?

Also do this. In a terninal window run:

tail -f ~/.xsession-errors

...then press the shortcut. Does anything display in the terminal window?

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Does that core dump message appear when you press the keyboard shortcut?

If so, try that last command again. See where it says "wrapper-2.0:1391"? The "1391" is the process ID. When you do it again and get the message about the core dump, also run:

ps -ef | grep PID

...where PID is the number at the end of the wrapper string. So in this case it would have been "ps -ef | grep 1391".

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Hmm. Its odd that its not working. Is xfsettingsd running?

ps -ef | grep xfsettingsd

Can you also post the contents of your ~/.xsession-errors file after a fresh log in?

Edit: Also, are you logging into the device or is this some sort of remote/vnc connection?

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

xfsettingsd is running:

<myuser>    1226     845  0 20:13 ?        00:00:00 xfsettingsd
<myuser>    2272    2265  0 20:16 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto xfsettingsd

After a fresh login and some minutes in .xsession-errors file there are many rows, about 150. Can I search for something in detail?

I am logged on my PC, not on remote desktop.

I also add 3 things
-here there are my only shortcut: https://imgur.com/sZ9Kw9l  (all works except quiterss)
-quiterss starts at boot and puts itself as an icon in the bar.
-the same shortcut in 20.10 worked also to show her window (to read the arrived feeds) every time I typed it, very convenient

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Is there a difference in versions of quiterss in 20.04 and 20.10? I'm testing with 0.19.4 and the keyboard shortcut works fine.

Also, with quiterss running in the tray, if you type "quiterss" in a terminal window, does the quiterss window display?

Edit: Also try this:

Press the keyboard shortcut, then post back the results of:

wmctrl -lvG | grep -i quiterss

... then press the keyboard shortcut again and post back again:

wmctrl -lvG | grep -i quiterss

no difference, the same 0.19.4

yes, the quiterss window is displayed.

The "wmctrl -lvG | grep -i quiterss" command returns always the same result:

envir_utf8: 1
Invalid type of WM_NAME property.

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Can you change the shortcut to run "mousepad" instead? And then see if pressing the shortcut command starts mousepad.

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

I've changed the app and now I run "geany": the shortcut ctrl+\ works.
I restore the quiterss and the shortcut ctrl+\ works again.
I reboot my PC and shortcut ctrl+\ (still quiterss) doesn't work anymore!

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

I wonder if its related to this ongoing bug. There was a release that tried to fix it between 20.04 and 21.10 causing a regression.

Are you using a different keyboard layout or locale?

When the shortcut no longer works, does restarting xfsettingsd help?

xfsettingsd --replace

Re: I can't launch app with shortcut

Restarting didn't help. It must be something went wrong during the transition from 20.10 to 21.04 and that has no solution other than reinstalling the entire OS.
Thanks anyway for your time!
